Treasure hunters looking for £200m Nazi gold find 5ft canister buried by Hitler's troops
Nazi gold, which could be worth £200 million, have stumbled across a huge canister of loot in Poland.The group, let by Roman Furmaniak from the Silesian Bridge Foundation, made the discovery that is expected to contain around World War Two loot.It is believed that it was stolen and hidden under the orders of murderous Nazi boss Heinrich Himmler – one of Adolf Hitler's right hand men.The steel canister was found around 10ft below the surface of an abandoned conservatory in Minkowskie, Poland, and measures around 5ft in length and 50cm diameter.The conservatory was part of an 18th century abandoned palace once used by the SS as a brothel, which is why the loot is stored there.It is thought that it would eventually be used to help fund a Fourth Reich.Mr Furmaniak said: “The first drill we made showed unnatural contortions on one side.“We made a second probe and received the same result on the other side - a third probe struck an object.“The shapes and colours show anomalies, in other words human interference in the ground.“Metal has a different density to earth, and this is shown as a darker colour in the images.”The group were led to the sight by secret Nazi documents, a former SS officer's diary and a map.As part of the diary, there was a letter confirming the existence of the loot.It reads: “My dear Inge, I will fulfil my assignment, with God's will.
